For our summer meeting we are focusing on soft core implementations of RISC-V.
In the light of the current level of COVID-19, this event will be purely online. There is no requirement to register, you can just connect to livestream using BigBlueButton using this link. Thank you to GWDG for providing hosting for the virtual meeting. We are also recording the talks for later posting on our YouTube channel.
The livestream link will be open from 18:00 for networking, and the event will start at 18:30 prompt. We’ll keep the link open afterward for discussion.
